When You Thought You Had Seen it All : SLS Brickell Hotel & Residences by Philippe Starck

•••

Inside A Grandiose Unit at Le St-Regis with Martin Rouleau and Marketing Author Jules Marcoux

What are we exactly? Social climbers? Some sort of fancy urban explorers? Imposters? I can hardly describe what we do at TOWER TRIP. Maybe the whole thing is more of a feeling? Something strange and intricate that grows inside, as we slowly climb the metaphorical steps of the most exciting real estate. One sure thing is that our next guest knows exactly[...]
